Undeniably Indian: The Chilli Pickle, Brighton Bursts with Colour Following Interior Revamp to celebrate 10 Years!

Inspired by the vibrant food, kaleidoscopic palette and eclectic culture of India, The Chilli Pickle in Brighton offers an authentic and accessible Indian dining experience echoing the vibrant energy of India in its dishes, service and, now, with its newly-reinvigorated interior and all-day dining on weekends.

Celebrating the treasures they’ve discovered on Indian travels, British couple Alun and Dawn Sperring live and breathe India. With a voracious appetite for its food and culture, they travel together with their children to a different region of the country every year and turned their passion into a business, opening The Chilli Pickle in 2008. Now celebrating 10 Years, The Chilli Pickle has undergone a bright, bold interior refresh with a transformative vision realised, encompassing a riotously bright colour scheme, hand-painted Tamil stencil graphics and A2 roadside-style posters, all of which echo the sensory overload you find on real Indian streets.


Believing it’s impossible to be bored of Indian food, annual discovery trips help develop the popular local restaurant’s menu, creating fresh versions of authentic regional dishes. With dishes as diverse as the Indian terrain and landscape, from the Himalayan peaks to the Indian Ocean coastline, the menu crisscrosses the country, celebrating regional dishes and drawing links between states, so customers can enjoy momo steamed dumplings from Nepal, Keralan coconut curry, Old Delhi-style butter chicken or Hyderabadi biryani. Whilst dedicated to traditional dishes, methods and ingredients, The Chilli Pickle kitchen is certainly not limited and the kitchen often creates innovative dishes pairing authentic Indian condiments and spices with local, seasonal ingredients, like oxtail madras and crispy pork belly vindaloo.

Booming every lunchtime, spend lunch hour grazing on their Grand Thalis or Railway Trays featuring a choice of freshly-made curry served with snacks, pickles, chutney, salad, rice, raita, papad and naan. With daily lunch and dinner sittings every weekday, The Chilli Pickle is now serving all-day on weekends so you can get your fix anytime from 12pm – 10.30pm on Saturdays and 12.30pm – 9.30pm on Sundays.



This year The Chilli Pickle will celebrate the bright and colourful Hindu festival of Holi, which takes place on 1st and 2nd March, the only way they know how – in style.

Everyone that dines between 23rd – 26th February will receive a powdered paint pouch to enjoy a traditional paint throwing party at home.  People are then asked to post a picture or video of the activity, tag @thechillipickle and be entered into a ‘Best Picture Competition’ and the winner will win a complimentary table for four.  For those dining at The Chilli Pickle on the specific Holi festival dates that come splashed with paint on their face, in their hair on their clothes will receive 50% off their food bill.

They’ll also be an exclusive cocktail called ‘The Holi Bang’, a multi-coloured concoction to pack a punch.

The Chilli Pickle is a window into India – a carnival of colour, flavour and warmth.
